How to make it

  • Bring a pot of slated water to boil. Add green beans. Cook for 3 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare a large bowl of ice water. When 3 minutes are up, drain beans immediately and immerse in ice water.

    I've made this recipe from The Barefoot Contessa's cookbook many times, scaling it down for just the two of us. It's one of our favorite ways to enjoy fresh green beans!
